But he left GMA viewers spluttering into their cereal after letting slip with the swear word while demonstrating his accent in the film to host Elizabeth Vargas.
The blunder came after a clip was shown of Tom Hanks in character, ranting away in a British accent.
Afterwards the actor told the host:
“The lesson to take away from that clip is <<Don’t mess with me, Liz Vargas>>.”
Elizabeth Vargas then challenged the
Forest Gump star to recreate the accent in the studio, with Hanks cautioning: “[It’s] mostly swear words.”
The presenter replied:
“If you say it with an accent like that, they won’t know.”

Tom Hanks then started to ramble (putting on an accent) – before letting slip with the F-word.
Immediately, he stopped mid sentence and put his hand to his mouth.
Elizabeth Vargas apologized:
“We are so sorry, Good Morning America.”
And Tom Hanks said:
“Man, oh man, I’m sorry. I have never done that before. “I want to apologize to the kids in America watching right now. “And let me say the next time I’m on the show there will be a seven-second delay. … Man oh man!”
